Hooper Cemetery (Avon)


Photo by Candy Roth - April 2013

This cemetery is located in Avon, Dare County, North Carolina.  From Hwy. 12 in Avon take Harbor Rd. (SR 1224), then turn right on North End Rd. (SR 1229) and go about 0.3 mile.  The cemetery will be on the right about 100 feet from the road.  Apparently a portion of Gray & Hooper stones are in the woods at the back of the cemetery and could not be photographed.   Google Maps for this cemetery.  Click on underlined names to see a photo of the headstone.  Unless otherwise noted, all photos were taken in April 2013 by Candy L. Roth.
